Event: DIGITAL SCHOLARLY EDITIONS AS INTERFACES (23-24 September, Graz)

The Centre for Information Modelling – Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities at the University of Graz is holding a two day sympoisum on DIGITAL SCHOLARLY EDTIONS AS INTERFACES which is kindly endorsed by DiXiT. The symposium will discuss the relationship between digital scholarly editing and interfaces by bringing together experts of DSEs and Interface Design, editors and users of editions, web designers and developers. It will include the discussion of (graphical/user) interfaces of DSEs as much as conceptualizing the digital edition itself as an interface. Keynote Speakers are Dot Porter (University of Pennsylvania) and Stan Ruecker (IIT Institute of Design).
